My view is, that this game should be played the 1st weekend after new year, why have a game on boxing day? the lads cant enjoy their xmas day with their families if they have to play on boxing day

Id agree with that. Don't really get friendlies on Boxing Day . Start in jan running smoothly to the season starts.

i agree. being right in the middle of the xmas period does the game,the players and the fans no favours. play it in january and use it as a pre season friendly.

I don't think there has been many "Ike" games actually played on Boxing Day over the years. What would be the point of playing the game with several players from each club missing over the Xmas period?

Its a bit like Turkeys voting for an early Christmas :rolleyes: Let the players enjoy their Christmas and New Year and play it in January. I think haven will get a better gate then.

Can someone from the club please confirm what date the match is to be played, this will then put our poor neighbours minds at rest and give them something really important to talk about, as at the moment their is not much happening in Dopeland, even Santa is pulling out of going there this year :wacko:

Woulyou go to work on boxing day if you weren't getting paid for it. I know I bloody wouldn't. The Sunday in between would be better or the one after new years. Chances are the game will be called off anyhow on that dump you call a ground, so why should the lads not enjoy there Xmas when the game will most likely be called off. But as long as some selfish jameaters are happy then that's all that matters.

Pray tell o wise one what are your sources of information? On here and on the havenfans forum you lot seem to have a lot to say, i think you have your knickers twisted, chinese whispers started by lot, fanned by you lot, and than believed by you lot, if either club cannot for any reason play on a certain day then so what, maybe you should get at your own directors for arranging pointless friendly games before the issue of playing a game in the memory of a great player,after all if town suggest a date but your mob have already got something else to do then who's fault is that? Pot and kettle come to mind when you go on about it, may i suggest you stick what you do, and let directors direct as the clue is in there title. Tadje

I think you'll find that Town have said that they would prefer not to play on Boxing Day - FACT.

Your comment that Town have also turned down the 30th December is an absolute lie..!!

At no point has any date been "turned down"..!!

Either get your FACTS right, or don't post anything at all.

Instead of listening to the rumour mill and picking out which bits you want to believe, I suggest you

quit stirring up trouble.

Come on H4E what have gotta say about that? A member of the BOD has put you straight after you claim to know what has and hasn't been said.

Will an apology be forth coming after the lies you have posted on here accusing Town of refusing to play it on the dates mentioned?

All the shouting about when this match has/should be played and it has never been played on a Boxing Day.

The trophy was first played for on 29 December 2006 on a wet night at the Rec.

The following year it was played on 30 December 2007 at DP

There wasn't a game in 2008 as the weather intervened and it was once again played on a wet afternoon at the Rec on 14 January 2009

The 2009 game despite the bridges being down went ahead on 27th December 2009 at DP

In 2010 once again due to weather the game wasn't played until 3 January 2011 at the Rec

Last year we couldn't raise a full team and the game was played on 15 January 2012 at DP

Boxing Day games were alright when it was a winter season but I wouldn't blame any player for not wanting to play in the Xmas period, especially those with young families. End of January would be the best time for this game as real tester for the season about to start!!!!

As we have other games organised for January please let the family of the GREAT Ike Southward (cumbrian legend) that the game is cancelled as the team he played his heart and soul out for can not be arsed to put a team together in his memory

terrible post. everyone connected with town has nothing but the upmost respect for Ike.
